Pearls are the gemstone of 2019

Move over diamonds, pearls are officially the gemstone of 2019 as new research reveals 57% of British women now own a piece of pearl jewellery, up 4% from 2017, with one in five women coming to own their first pearl item in the last six months.


The average British woman owns £432 of jewellery – but wears just £246 of it. Almost 70% of women wear the same jewellery every single day. Despite this, a fifth of women consider purchasing new jewellery to be their favourite affordable luxury.

Re-creating iconic pearl-wearing images

To celebrate the launch of new Thorntons Pearls, we have re-created some of the nation’s favourite iconic pearl-wearing images. The pearl accessories in the reimagined images are made entirely of Thorntons Pearls chocolate, meaning this stunning jewellery is truly good enough to eat.

This also displays the craftsmanship that our chocolate makers put in to all of our products.

Eating luxury chocolate was voted the favourite affordable luxury for British women and Marilyn Monroe was voted the most iconic image. Other iconic images include:

Princess Diana’s signature sapphire and pearl set
Rihanna’s iconic vintage chanel sunglasses ensemble
Vermeer’s 17th century painting ‘girl with the pearl earring
